Like general network communication, there are network-induced delays, data packet dropout and disordering in the communication of wide-area measurement systems. What impact do these factors have on the control of wide-area closed-loop power systems? This study aims at developing methods in order to take these factors into account in control of wide-area power systems. First, a networked control system model is constructed for wide-area closed-loop power systems; in this model, network-induced delays, data packet dropout, and disordering are captured by time-varying delays in wide-area measurement systems. Then, linear matrix inequality based methods are applied to design a controller for better power system performance using wide-area information as feedback signals. The controller can tolerate network-induced delays, data packet dropout, and disordering in the communication of wide-area measurement systems. Finally, we give some simulation results showing the effectiveness of our approach.
